But not everybody was down with the cause. Perhaps some of y’all have seen things like this on Twitter:

There’s just one problem with that… same sex marriage has been legal in Canada for a decade!

Yep, with the passing of the Civil Marriage Act on July 20, 2005, Canada made same sex marriage legal nationwide ten years before the U.S.!

In fact, gay marriage is legal in a lot of countries — so if you’re planning to leave America because of the same sex marriage ruling, you should probably avoid all these countries, too:

Netherlands (legal since 2001)
Belgium (2003)
Spain (2005)
Canada (2005)
South Africa (2006)
Norway (2009)
Sweden (2009)
Portugal (2010)
Iceland (2010)
Argentina (2010)
Denmark (2012)
Brazil (2013)
France (2013)
Uruguay(2013)
New Zealand (2013)
The United Kingdom (2014)
Luxembourg (2015)
and now…
The United States (2015)

Plus, same sex marriage is expected to become the law of the land soon in Slovenia, Finland, Ireland, and across all of Mexico!

Fear not, bigots — there are still plenty of other places for you to live. Uranus comes to mind… LOLz!
